'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

I read Dejan Kovacevic's sports column “Kovacevic: The Paternos' sad, squeaky reply” (Feb. 11) regarding the Paterno family's report. I have some questions for him.

Why does he think Mr. Freeh is right about Mr. Paterno when he was so wrong in the fiascos of Waco, Ruby Ridge, Wen Ho Lee, Richard Jewell and numerous others? As Charles R. Smith wrote for in 2002, Freeh “oversaw the longest run of FBI public disasters in its entire history.”

The Penn State trustees knew where to get the report they needed. Why didn't they conduct a thorough analysis of the Freeh report before accepting it? Why were they so anxious to put this behind them? What were the true motives of some trustees?

Why did the Penn State president accept the outrageous NCAA sanctions without question? Please don't tell me it was because he was worried about the “death penalty.” NCAA President Mark Emmert and NCAA Executive Committee Chair Ed Ray each gave different answers regarding the fact that the “death penalty” was on the table, and that has never been explained.

I would appreciate getting answers to these questions, which no one wants to address.
